Audi networks with traffic lights in Europe
Audi is introducing the vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) service "Traffic Light Information" to Europe. Starting this summer Audi will network new models with the traffic lights in Ingolstadt/Germany; further European cities will follow from 2020 onwards. Then cars will be more likely to catch a "green wave" in the city: Audi drivers will see in the cockpit what speed is required to reach the next traffic light on green. If that is not possible within the permitted speed limit, there will be a countdown to the next green phase. Driving in cities will thus become more relaxed and efficient.
